Ambrose loves his waif.  But the waif, a handsome young man, has murder on his mind–a convenient solution for getting rid of his overweight partner who uses his girth and his influence to stand in the way of the pair’s love for one another.  In this twisted tale, played out in letters between Ambrose and his waif, we get a glimpse into the bizarrely romantic lives of the world’s most original lovers.  Their love is founded on mutual hate, deceit, and a prurient longing for the other seldom seen in gay fiction.  What’s true and what’s false in the brooding, fantastical letters the pair pens to one another?  Not even they are certain as they plot murder, plan escape to exotic, far-off lands, and confound one another with psychological mind games.  As you hungrily press through pages, you, too, will be confounded as you think you know what’s happening, only to have your beliefs reversed, set back on course again, and perhaps even striking off in entirely new and unexpected directions.  What is certain is that you will never be sure of the fate of Ambrose and the Waif until you get to its final, breathless conclusion………..

During the days, they were fierce nineteen-year-old rivals in a collegiate golf competition, but at night, their passion sizzled under the sheets.  After Team USA won, Rio “River” Vargas returned to his native Spain and Greg Thorenson headed back to his home in the United States.  But when Rio didn’t respond to a letter he sent, Greg wasn’t sure if Rio’s silence was because Greg had beaten him for the win or because their affair had been only a four-night-fling.  Now, professionals at the height of their game, they meet again as competitors in a major tournament in the California desert, where the prize of thousands of dollars is at stake.  It’s been six silent years since those wild, hot nights as young men.  Maybe for Rio that earlier passion had been an experiment, an aberration of who he really is and of whatever Greg may have meant to him.  But to Greg, that earlier passion had been something deeper…he had fallen in love.  Upon seeing Rio again, Greg is torn between ignoring the past or re-igniting the banked embers of emotion to see where they’ll lead.  But can he risk it?  If Greg opens himself to love, and also wins this tournament, Rio may very well walk out of his life a second time……….!
